I am enjoying a perfect Sunday doing my online thing and have just found the website below. I love the minimalist design and skillfully crafted content.
Idea of Self
Your Idea of Self is who you think you are. Do you think that you are a good person? Do you think that you are a confident person? All of the ideas that you have about yourself is your Idea of Self.
Certain things in your life will try to make you change your idea of self. If someone tries to criticize you, then they are attacking your idea of self. If they are successful in attacking your idea of self, then you will change your idea of self and have a new idea of self. For example, if you believe that you are beautiful and someone says you are ugly, who are you going to believe? Will you let that person change your idea of self?
It's amazingly powerful when you can let the insults of "others" roll off your back emotionally. My current MO is to forgive everything instantly (as much as possible!)
